AFAIK, They get money from Filehippo every time someone downloads CCleaner, Donations made by the users, the Yahoo Toolbar, maybe other few ways.

The probably have an agreement with yahoo toolbar and probably get a lot of money from there. You can imagine how many people download their products, that is a lot of exposure to the toolbar, so naturally you'd expect yahoo to pay a lot for that.

I wouldn't personally think third-party add-ons like for instance in this case Yahoo Toolbar would pay much per download, however if you see how many downloads CCleaner gets I suppose it could possibly add up -- sheer userbase could help in that scenario alone. Now if only all those users donated annually!

Thats actually a good point, I never thought about it. I'd have to assume its at least a part time job committment, but I dont think it'd be absurd to say they all have fulltime jobs or are retired and that Piriform is just a hobby. Hmm.. Maybe one of the devs could tell us ;)
